Reply To: Random questions for those who have CIDP
Thank you all for your replies. I am working with a functional nutritionist as well and I plan on getting a second and third opinion about the CIDP. It’s not that I don’t believe I have CIDP, it’s just that it all of the sudden came about in the middle of a B-complex deficiency. I find the timing strange especially since a B12 complex can cause many of the same symptoms. And again the myelin sheath is made up of B vitamins which my system can’t absorb through natural processes. If it is (or at least some of what I’m feeling) is CIDP then from what I have been reading it seems that I caught it in the early stages so that’s good. It looks like the earlier you get diagnosed the better change you have of remission with IVIg.
Anyway, thank you for welcoming me to the family. I appreciate all of you! And I guess maybe all of us should be thankful that CIDP is a treatable disease.
